Phydeaux's First Give Away!

I thought I'd celebrate Autumn (my favorite season by far -- definitely time to celebrate!) with all of you!

I'm going to give away one of my newest scarflettes, "Spice Berry," to one lucky reader by random drawing, on Saturday October 4th! Just enter a comment below sharing the one thing you love the most about Fall, and be sure to include your email (or your Etsy shop/user name if you have one).

I have several of these all ready, one for giving, others for the shop.

One entry per person, please!

I remember visiting the mountains of Colorado in the fall - the white bark of the aspen trees, the canopy of golden leaves against a gorgeous blue sky! So beautiful you are happy to be alive.

How exciting! Your scarflette is lovely. I also love Autumn, and one of my favorite things about the season is collecting colorful leaves with my two kids.

Best wishes for the season!

I love the crisp in the air, the changing of color and a deep feeling of something familiar.
Lovely scarlet , it looks so soft!

I love the leaves changing - ok, maybe not so much here, but when I lived elsewhee... The coolness in the air meant all the fun holidays were just around the corner!

A phydeaux give away! How lovely!!

My favorite thing about the fall season is something that I didn't really get to appreciate until I went away to college in NY - the leaves changing colors.

I remember waking up one morning and walking to my first class and the ground was completely covered in yellow leaves. I felt like Dorothy walking down the yellow brick road. It was pure magic!

I don't get to see many color changes in the leaves in SD, mostly because there are mainly palm trees - ha ha!

I used to live in Colorado, and one of my favorite things in the fall was to go up into the mountains and see the aspen groves, golden leaves dangling from limbs like a million golden coins, the whole mountain moving as a breeze swept through the grove. As far as I know, there's nothing else like it in the world.

Autumn has always been my favorite season--maybe because I have an October birthday? I remember driving through DC the first year I lived there on a typical autumn day. It was a bit blustery, grey and overcast with sun peeking through. The leaves were blowing everywhere, and I was driving near the campus of American University, so there were lots of kids and backpacks. Looked like a scene out of a movie. And for a SoCal girl like me, it was the coolest thing!

Ah, autumn :)

I have allllways loved Autumn as my most favorite season. Maybe because my BDay marks the first day of Fall? Maybe because I've always loved the beginning of the school year - the freshly sharpened pencils, the virgin notebooks. Maybe that invigorating crisp freshness in the air? Maybe the slow cooked butternut squash? I love ALL of it.

Today, though, I am looking forward to pulling out my green cowboy boots. Maybe I'll wear them Monday, the first day of Autumn. Yeah, good idea.

The new colors are amazing; the wonderful music of the rustling of myriad leaves changes in tone in the fall, to a crisper, scratchier sound...I love these things that come in fall. But my favorite change that fall brings is how alive my lungs feel when I step outside, and take in a deep breath of chilled autumn air; normally we are not aware of our lungs, but in fall they truly come alive.

Thanks for having this giveaway- how fun! Fall is also my favorite season. There is just a certain feeling in the air that comes with Fall and makes me feel loved, excited, and refreshed. The colors of the leaves changing takes my breath away every time I walk outside into the crisp air. I love being able to put on my old favorite sweaters and cuddle up under a blanket on the colder nights. I just love the beauty and feeling of freedom from Fall...ahh the best. :)

Thanks!

favorite thing about the fall is candles...too hot in the summer but can get away with it during the transition to winter. Oh and NEW FALL SEASON...yes, I love TV that much!

Brenda // Phydeaux Designs said...

Shout outs from UK! I'm a Malaysian gal, working in the UK for the last 6 years. We don't have fall back home. I reckon I am cold-weather clothes deprived! I love fall for the colours (everything reminds me of my favourite time of day - just before sun sets when everything is cast in that lovely glowing orange colour), for the brisk blustery wind that means I can put on knee length socks and boots, wrap up warm in an oversize coat and snuggle down into a super soft scarf. Most of all, I love coming home and watching the glow descend on the nearby trees and snuggle up under a blanket with a steaming cup of coffee :)

Easy- the best thing about fall is the clothes! The colors and textures of fall clothing are so gorgeous and rich, and you get to wear all sorts of cute sweaters, light jackets and blazers... SCARFLETS...

stephanie muller said...

Autumn is my favourite time of year to tree-climb. Up north in Collingwood, Ontario- miles of thin ladders woven between the newly coloured trees...the crisp air in your face, and the spectacular view. Nothing beats the coming of fall!

Oh it has to be the fireplace! I can sit there for hours with a fuzzy blanket and a good book. Of course, I would be much cozier with a scarflette. Thanks for the giveaway!

My favorite part of Fall is the cool, crisp air and being able to have the windows open! I also love apple picking and baking! Thank you for the giveaway!

Oh holy night, I almost missed this!! I think I have a problem with my feed reader...I switched to Google and it didn't transfer you for some reason. I'll get that fixed right away!

I wondered why you were being so quiet...

Fall love? Pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin. The food, the color, the smell. I love pumpkin.

Brenda // Phydeaux Designs said...

LOL -- I'm glad you entered, Heather!

I'm with you on the pumpkin! I'm going to be posting about my all time favorite soup pretty soon -- pumpkin gruyere (to DIE for). :)

Summer said...

Such a wonderful blog!

I must say that fall is my FAVORITE season! What I enjoy most is honestly that it is no longer hot! However, I could go on and on about all the loveliness that fall brings! :)

lillyella, uniquely you said...

Oh boy do I love fall - I think my favorite part is the smell of dried leaves - or finally being able to wear scarves again!

Nancy said...

There is a lot to like about Fall. I think it is a beautiful time of year...the leaves are changing colors...I like the cooler weather...we have wonderful holidays...Halloween and Thanksgiving. The kids are going back to school.

I love putting up Halloween decorations with a cool breeze and a light jacket. It is also a good time to bake and cook inside.

Those are the things I love when I think of Fall.

Shabana said...

The biggest thing I love about fall is the cool crisp air!
The hearty foods like soups, stews, & anything made with apples!
Changing colors of the leaves!
Turning dark early, I love!

Melissa Nucera said...

My favorite thing this year will be sharing my daughters first fall with her - and the pumpkin carving, of course ;)

Rebecca said...

I have one word for you...
PUMPKINS!!!

It like that everyone is sharing their autmun in Colorado experiences! I livevs there for a few years and I have to agree it is the most beautiful place to experience the change of seasons. My favorite thing about the season is getting all cuddly with a cup of cocoa or going for a walk an enjoying the air- it smells different in the fall, doesn't it?

Gloria Muller said...

My daughter sent me the link to your site and I must say your work is beautiful! My favourite thing about fall is thanksgiving; getting together with family, baking, cooking, and being merry- one of the few times of the year where everyone is together, and it's always special.
